Kiggans votes in favor of funding for military, Border Patrol, etc.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Congresswoman Jen Kiggans released a statement after voting in favor of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2024.

This legislation was passed out of the House by a vote of 286 to 134, and provides a total $1.23 trillion in government funding, including for the military, Border Patrol and other services, Kiggans said, in a release.

“For years Washington went on a reckless spending spree, making our national debt skyrocket and hurting working families,” Kiggans said. “That’s why I have made it my mission in Congress to rein in the wasteful spending from previous years while strategically increasing our defense budget and taking care of our servicemembers. Today I am proud to say that this bill delivers on that promise, and I was proud to support it.”
